First Year Physical Education

29 15 6

During the First Year core games and PE programme, pupils will experience a range of traditional English games and activities.

Pupils will develop their physical competences and skills to lead to effective performance in games and competitions. 

Depending on a pupils ability, they will either train in their sqauds or learn to perform in a game or activity that allows development of their physical literacy and lifelong involvement in physical activity. 

Games and PE is used as a platform to develop responsible, independent learners who strive for improvement and maintenance of performance and health. 

The core games and PE programme is complimented by the First Year 21st Century Programme, which allows further investigation into fitness and health and assessment of a pupil's own performance. 

It allows a platform for understanding the importance of physical activity and lifelong participation and provides an insight into what further study of PE at GCSE and BTEC is like.

Ultimately, PE aims to provide pupils with an understanding of the importance of physical wellbeing that they can adopt now and in the future.
